Take just ONE STEP….

If you are feeling stuck, it’s often wise not to take a big leap all at once. Be patient with yourself. One small step or action can lead to feeling a bit more confident, a little more encouraged, and starting to feel better about yourself. Then give yourself a pat on the back. Then take another step and, if it doesn’t work out, that’s okay. Keep going. Build on whatever progress you have made. Solicit the support of others whom you can trust. If you don’t give up, it’s very likely you will look back in some months or a few years and see that, after all, you are in a better place, feeling better about yourself and finding more satisfaction in life. You can start now. Happy Spring!

Reacting to Spring?

Are you feeling more depressed with Spring here? You may be surprised to find that this is not so unusual. My Counseling services may be of help to you.

On the other hand, you may be feeling more energized but searching for a direction. In that case, my Coaching services may be helpful.

You are welcome to call for a free, no obligation, phone consult to talk about if I am the right Counselor or Coach for you at this time and how I might assist you.
